Zola the gorilla’s joyous dancing briefly set the internet afire this week, with a routine seemingly inspired by the movie “Flashdance.”But internet remixes aside, Zola’s moves did not really constitute “dancing,” since there was no rhythm or music involved. It’s adorable, but without Jennifer Beal’s influence and our tendency to anthropomorphize animals, it’s more accurate to call it “playing.”Here’s a gorilla at the Calgary Zoo doing a similar move, sans splashpool.
Creator Noah Hawley and the cast of the FX drama Fargo haven’t been coy about the influence of Donald Trump’s presidency on the show’s third season. “There’s clear references in there to what’s going on,” David Thewlis, who plays the show’s villain, V.M. Varga, told Deadline. “Varga is a supreme example of this bullshit, quite honestly.”Varga is not exactly supposed to be Trump—he’s a bulimic Brit with shabby clothes, wispy hair and terrible teeth.
It’s getting to be the season for iced coffee in the northern hemisphere, and there are a dizzying array of methods to prepare it. Last summer marked the year that “cold brew” coffee—a method that steeps coffee grounds for many hours with cold or room temperature water—went mainstream. Cold brew, which has a smoother, less bitter taste, represented a radical improvement in summer-appropriate coffee. But iced coffee lovers, there is a better way.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
